Image Discuss: Team 30 Scissor lift raised



Our lift raised to almost the full height… it can go a little bit higher than this(another 3-4"?)

What good is a scissor lift? I mean, you could lift enemy boxes to even out the score for finals, but how do you get the boxes on the lift in the first place?

I don’e get it…

Ok, i am thinking of old rules, but now i am really confused. What could you use it for?

Description:
The boxes are upside down because we have to attach the forklift mechanism to the lift…

From their picture with the scissor lowered. I assume, get a box, raise, drive, place, back up, lower, wash, rinse, repeat

there’re gonna be 2 bars that swing out to grab a box in front of the robot. the arms are attached to the top of the scissor lift, they hook under the box handles. then we lift the scissor lift, the arms lift it up with it, up goes the box, we drive to another box, lower, and do it again… simple :slight_smile:
